Sheffield, Tasmania, town of murals

Friday, 18 May 2012




Whilst I was in Tasmania, I visited Sheffield, town of murals. Many of the villages and towns make themselves distinct by labelling themselves with specialist tag-lines such as 'village of roses', 'home of the platypus' etc. This mural was one of my favourites - has a kind of Edward Hopper feel to it.


Everywhere in the town is covered with murals. The sheer quantity of them is impressive.









The town did have a Hollywood set wild west feeling about it, so I thought this one was apt. Which mural is your favourite?


Paradise is actually another town, but I'm sure any fellow English northerners will find this funny!

Wonderful colors and organic natural forms. Reminds me of a painting like Rainy landscape, by Russian painter Kandinsky, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8EWL66, that I saw at wahooart.com, from where one can order a canvas print of it. Really good place to browse the painter’s work and other work similar to your style of painting.
